Light display at Lions Centennial Park

The Lions Centennial Park Christmas light display will be one of the stops included in Ponoka’s Christmas Lights Tour.

The Christmas light display at Lions Centennial Park is scheduled to begin Dec. 9, and continue until the end of February.

The light display is expected to be bigger and brighter than ever this year due to the Ponoka Lions Club’s $5,000 donation, which is helping to expand the tens of thousands of lights being strung throughout the park this year.
